Thoughts about the week:
For this program, you need to know your 1RM so that you could determine what weight to use. My squat 1RM from my USAPL competition in October 2017 was 231lbs and my deadlift 1RM was 300lbs. (As promised, I tested out my bench 1RM last week and got 105lbs!!!! (I was super happy because I missed 104.5lbs at my last competition, after being peaked.)) The reason why I mention this is because currently, the only true 1RM is my bench. Although I used my 1RM for the squat and deadlift, I made sure to play it conservatively.
Bench felt amazing this week. The goal is to get stronger in the lift so Alex and I picked bench exercises that would do just that- 3 count pause, incline, and sling shot (since I have to perform 10 reps).
I haven't performed the low bar back squat in quite some time so that felt good. Front Squats are the bane of my existence. I am not sure if my back muscles are weak or if its my hips or ankles but I cannot maintain an upright position nor upright elbows.
Deadlifts made me feel super weak although I am impressed with my form which I could give thanks to the deficit deadlifts.
